About

Meinert Wines is a small premium producer located in the picturesque Devon Valley within the Stellenbosch Region of the Western Cape of South Africa. Each bottle of Meinert wine is created with personal attention and care to ensure uniqueness and individual character. With only 80,000 bottles produced annually, every blend is personal and distinctive.
Our grapes are meticulously selected from the cool Devon Crest and Elgin Valleys. Natural yeasts are used in fermentation and our wines are aged in French oak. Our beautiful boutique wine farm has a story inspired by a family’s history. From the names of the wines, to the symbols and the packaging, a story unfolds and a journey is followed.

Martin Meinert is the original cellar master behind multiple award winning wines over the last 30 years. Speaking of his love of wine making, Martin says, “Here I found I could tell many stories – of the land, the people that work it, the valley and those who live here. I could create wines that reflect the character of our vineyard – a woven fabric of vines, soil and the perfect climate.”

As one of the ‘patrons’ of the South African wine industry, Martin celebrates a new era, welcoming Brendan Butler; young yet accomplished and passionate wine master. Brendan is carrying on the beautiful art of winemaking at Meinert and honouring the legacy started at Devon Crest.

Vineyards

Reintroduced to our range in 2006, Cabernet Sauvignon has replaced our former Bordeaux blend Devon Crest, which is still fondly mourned. I believe Cabernet Sauvignon is particularly suited to our vineyard and thus important to showcase. Our soils, which are deep and well drained with high clay content, and the low yields define our wines. Vines receive supplementary irrigation. Average yield 5 tons/ha.

Winemaking

Fermented with natural yeasts, made in classic low intervention manner, no extended skin maceration. Aged 24 months in new (15%), second and third fill French Oak barrels. Polished with a light (half an egg per 100 litres) egg white fining and bottled in October 2015.

Tasting Notes

Dense deep fresh red colour. The nose displays red berries, typical Cabernet herbs, spicy toasty oak and tobacco. Mouth filling but soft on entry, lingers gently and long on the finish. Should match well with Tuscan style veal, wild boar or warthog with truffled mash and of course a well-aged piece of beef like prime rib, especially with reduced rich sauces. Or venison – we enjoyed it with eland. Drink now and until about 2025. The charm of the vintage is in its gentle character rather than its ability to age, I think.
